Phones:

The following information applies to Phones people and is not required for other employees to read and understand.

Employee Drinks and Food:​

  • Employees can receive a 25% discount on a personal food item.  This includes an appetizer, sandwich, burger, pasta, personal size pizza, salad, soup, kids menu item, or wrap.

  • If you want food for yourself, you must enter the food order on the POS "Your Name Emp".  The kitchen employees will make it when they get your ticket. 

  • Do not place personal food orders during a rush.  If the kitchen is backed up with orders, please wait to place your food order until the kitchen has caught up.  If we are busy it is unlikely you will have time to eat it right then anyways.  Make sure you don't come to work starving and stay hydrated.

  • No one is allowed to take food from the kitchen without a ticket.

You are here to work:​

  • That means no friends in carryout while you are at work.

  • Keep cellphone use to the minimum.  If you are found on your phone when there are things that you should be doing instead there will be an issue. 

  • If you smoke, you are only able to do so if you have no pickups.  Customers do not need to pull in and see you getting up or walking in from smoking.  If you would like to smoke, you need to ask a manager. No electric cigarettes inside the building.

  • If there is downtime, ask the servers, managers, or bartenders if they need help with anything.

Scheduling:

  • If you are sick please do not wait and "see if" you feel better later on in the day. Try to cover your shift ASAP. Call or Text Chatty once you have your shift covered and tell her what is happening.

  • If you know there is an event you want to attend, please again get your shift covered ASAP. Even if its weeks in advance. Do not wait til the last minute, the sooner the better.

  • Make a trade on a shift when you are asking someone to cover. People are more likely to cover you.

  • Text Chatty on All Shift changes. Include both people involved. Please do this so there is no confusion. A few times already people have switched the times they were coming in and then none of the managers know and are unsure who is supposed to be there at 4pm.

  • We understand "life happens" and last minute emergency situtuations arrise. Try to get your shift covered or text Chatty for help.

  • Please make sure you have everyone's phone numbers. They are on the board in Carryout. As well as on the Twig Portal.

Keep walking through the kitchen to a minimum:

  • Please try to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible, especially when really busy.  There are a lot of people working on the weekends and if you keep walking back and forth to the dining room, you will slow down the kitchen if they have to stop what they are doing everytime you walk by.

No Gossip Policy

In the workplace, gossip is an activity that can drain, distract, and downshift employee job satisfaction.  We have all participated in this, yet most of us say we don't like it.  In order to create a more professional workplace, we are making a commitment to change our atmosphere to be gossip free. 

         gos-sip n. Rumor or talk of a personal, sensational, or intimate nature.  A person who habitually spreads intimate or private rumor or facts.  Trivial, chatty talk or writing.

 

You will notice that gossip is something that you DO. That also means that it is something you choose to do- and you can choose NOT to do it.  You enter into gossip by choice - you can opt out of the activity at work.  In order to end gossip means to end a particular type of communications - and that can be talk or text communications.

 

  • Gossip always involves a person who is not present.

  • Unwelcome and negative gossip involved criticizing another person

  • Gossip often is about conjecture that can injure another person's credibility reputation.

In order to have a more professional, gossip free workplace we will:

  1. Not speak or insinuate another co-worker's or customer's name when that person is not present unless it is to compliment or reference regarding work matters.

  2. Refuse to participate when another mentions a co-worker or customer who is not present in a negative light.  I will change the subject or tell them I have agreed not to talk about another.

  3. Choose not to repsond to negative text or use text to pass on private or derogatory information about any co-worker or customer.

  4. While off the job, speak to another co-worker about people at work in a derogatory light.  If I have feelings, I will select to talk to someone not at the workplace.

  5. If another person in the department does something unethical, incorrect, against procedures, or disruptive I will use the proper channels to report this to the person in authority to take corrective action.

  6. I will mind my own business, do good work, be a professional adult and expect the same from others.
